Our bars are 7/8, not 1". They will still work you'll just have to mod them a bit.

I bought a set of Keystone Z-Bars for my 750 a while back. They gave the bike a new appearance; however, they have ya leaning forward and it didn't feel right on this cruiser.

I only understand what I don't understand.

Not sure how one can tell the difference between 7/8" and 1" just from a photo, so your logic escapes me. But just feel lucky I don't work at their return department...


Rise To Grip Tip: 4"
Pull Back: 6-1/2"
Handlebar Diameter: 1-1/4"
Grip Diameter(mounting clamp area): 1"
Width Tip To Tip: 32"
Center Width: 5-1/2"

We are not responsible for custom applications and any fitments that do not correctly match listed descriptions.

Guess there's no point in tellng you that a company might use the same photo for simular products. Or that given they say the bar itself is 1-1/4 inches it really looks like the center of the bar is closer to an inch than 7/8....to me.
Just reread that disclaimer again.....

"We are not responsible for custom applications and any fitments that do not correctly match listed descriptions."

Your money dude......
